If you haven’t yet, it’s time to check out Movie Mondays at the Heard Museum.
On Monday, August 10 at 1:30pm, the museum will be showing Waterbuster, a 2006 documentary chronicling the dislocation and relocation of the Mandan-Hidatsa-Arikara Nation of North Dakota due to a dam that inundated their homeland along the banks of the Missouri River. The 79-minute film is also the personal story of the director’s family, whose life choices were influenced by this powerful reshaping of the landscape.

Movie Mondays are continuing at the Heard Museum this month, beginning with a showing of Raindance in a Storm on Monday, August 3 at 1:30pm.
In 1990, the Hopi Tribe staged an unprecedented and uncharacteristic public protest against what had been Arizona’s number-one “Indian” attraction for 70 years, yet didn’t include a single Indian. Critically examined for the first time, the culture of the Smoki People organization is seen from the perspectives of those who lived it, those who witnessed it and those offended by it.
